Further information:
"Peter Downsbrough has developed a strongly reduced visual vocabulary, which he uses to investigate the given space in a very personal and precise way. His material consists of letters and lines. He uses adhesive letters, forming conjunctions, prepositions, verbs and/or nouns and applies them to the walls, floors and/or ceilings. Lines, for which he uses cloth tape, emphasize certain architectural elements. Metal pipes, in the space and sometimes on the wall, accentuate the space. Areas defined by lines or painted black sometimes play a role, and, with the lines and the words reveal the architecture of interior or exterior spaces.
This rigorous treatment of the space continues in Peter Downsbrough’s books, maquettes, photographs, video’s or prints. They all reveal an extreme coherence, which some situate in the minimal and conceptual art movements." (from the Galerie Zander website http://www.galeriezander.com)
